Close to VA campus
Management is very friendly and responsive. Laundry in apartment, spacious bedrooms with huge windows. Fireplace in living room. Access to a small gym and two pools included with rent. Great deal for the price.
Great apartment option!
This apartment complex has bad reviews online (Yelp/google) but I've had nothing short of a great experience living in Stoneridge! They switched management companies in Summer, 2016 and are in the process of renovating all of the units (granite/stainless, etc!). Unfortunately, this means that you won't find an apartment at the same price we paid (A 3 bed/2 bath starts at $2200 now) Utilities aren't included but are about $100/month/person. Parking is free and it's not difficult to find a spot right outside your apartment. They also have valet trash that picks up trash right outside of your door every night! It is right next to campus and there are beautiful walking trails behind the complex along the Potomac River.
Not unless you're desperate
This is a great place to live due to its proximity to GWU's nursing school. Honestly, that's about it. The office staff are rude except for one guy who senses when his coworkers are being unnecessarily short with people and tries to compensate by being even nicer. You can tell he's really trying to counteract. If you move in on a Friday, try to start your utilities before you start to unload your vehicle. Otherwise, you'll catch a $50 fine for not immediately changing utilities over to your name. I'll warn you because the front office won't.
In January, several people with out of state license plates received tickets for not having county property tax stickers on their vehicles. When I called Loudon County treasurer's office, I was told that I was given a warning back in September. Other people were given warnings as well. The problem is, nobody received a physical warning. No windshield ticket. No contact with Loudon County Sheriff's office. The identifying information for our vehicles was taken down and a warning was placed in the system, but there was no notification whatsoever. For context, all of the ticket recipients are from out of state and the so-called warnings were issued within two weeks of moving in. I'm concerned that the front office is tipping off the sheriff's office because the tickets and warnings coincide with move in dates and the beginning of a new semester.
As for the apartment: it takes between 6-8 minutes to get warm water (both summer and winter now) in the shower and the sink, the tiles in my bathroom have gaping holes in them (caulk was never filled back in), the maintenance guys used a crowbar to access the water heater closet and damaged the door frame, the microwave only partially heats food, and the list continues on.
The management is not great. Somewhat difficult to work with but it is so close to campus and cheap. To me, these things weighed out over the management being poor.
This apartment is ideal for me and my family and our lifestyle. I never feel like it is too far from anything, the location is perfect. Management has always been very prompt whenever we have communicated. Nice living space. Some neighbours are not so great though.
Beautiful interior upgrades
High ceilings, built in bookcases, huge and updated kitchen (granite countertops, stainless appliances, kitchen island). Parking is tight sometimes but I've enjoyed living in this apartment complex for the past month. Huge bathrooms but bedroom size is about average. Convenient location whether commuting downtown or to metro Atlanta. Close to 285.
The Pointe at Lenox Park
Cool place to live. I enjoy the area. The kids enjoy the area. The school district is ok. I am also a commuter student downtown, so this place is convenient. There is free parking on site, which is excellent.
I love living in these apartments. They are so great as far as the having a roommate goes. Spacious and just gives the atmosphere of a young girl in her 20's that is a senior in college. There are a lot of college students living in my building so we are all respectable to each other and the management is awesome. PS. The pool is to die for :)
I just moved to City View apartments off Oltorf from living on West Campus. My West Campus apartment was the worst place I ever lived--things falling apart, bugs, bad maintenance, my ceiling was even caving in. Now, I pay $100 more than I would have in West Campus, but the difference is unbelievable. This is a huge, clean, beautiful apartment where everything works, there are no bugs, and there multiple useful amenities. much better value/lifestyle then living in west campus!
City View on Oltorf
The location is pretty convenient. The rent is reasonable since you are still in a semi-bad area. It takes about four minutes to get to downtown, and 71 is close, so you can get around pretty easily. There is a crime problem. Both my car and my roommate’s were broken into and our neighbor was killed during a bad drug deal about two weeks after we moved in, but that was the only murder in the year that I’ve been here. The apartments are fairly new, so they have a modern design and floor plan.
